Or, in particular, are there comic books in Marvel Universe?

Logic dictates that some form of comics should be there - at least about Captain America and some early Marvels, before true age of Superheroes started, but I can't remember any actual examples. Even in Runaways...

In a comic about young Peter Parker, he did read so horror comics, though the name of this comic, and the comics he was reading escape me.

I know they made references to Journey into Mystery in early Fantastic Four comics. And in the Marvel Universe, they had an ongoing FF comic published.

Yes.

In fact, Spider-man referenced The Dark Knight and full out imitated Bale's Batman.

Many comics reference the existence of other comic books - mostly from different companies.

Wanted is kinda self-aware in a sense.

Remember when they referenced The 1960's Batman T.V show in the Runaways? (If you have read it)

They always try to make vague references but that was just straight forward.

I couldn't find the full scan, but She Hulk's Sensational run was apparently a comic in the Marvel Universe.

Yeah but they were more like recorded events, rather than ficticious comic books.

I don't know about Marvel but there's comics in all sorts of other comics, some are parodies of other comics, some are comics related to the characters in the story and then there's stuff like Watchmen where we read the comic the character is reading.

In Fables, Boy Blue, Pinocchio and Flycatcher are avid comic readers and there are comics produced solely for them as nobody else reads comics in Fabletown.

There were loads of references to DC comics in the Alpha story arc of Amazing Spider-Man.

@Kyle_Dornez: There are comics in Image, Marvel, DC, and Dark Horse. There many examples. There are also animes/mangas with some"" in them as well.

There was an issue of She-Hulk (Dan Slott's run) which emphasized that Marvel comics could be used in court cases.....
